We continue our Countdown to the Annapolis Summit series by focusing on criminal justice issues, including police accountability measures, drug laws, and alternatives to incarceration.

Bryan Sears, Business Writer for The Daily Record, joins us to talk about his recent article on these issues and give an overview of the politics around them in Annapolis. Then, I’m joined by a panel of advocates who work on these issues: Rev. Todd Yeary, Senior Pastor of the Douglas Memorial Community Church; Sara Love, Public Policy Director of the ACLU of Maryland; Michael Eugene Johnson, community leader and Executive Director of the Paul Robeson Institute for Social Change; and Jacqueline Robarge, Founder and Director of Power Inside, a project of Fusion Partnerships.
